In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

“Superfine! has been a life-changing experience that throttled my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day.”

— Sean Christopher Ward, exhibiting artist

NYCx1: (wo)man | 4.22-4.26.2020

The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

NYCx2: myth | 4.29-5.2.2020

Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of new contemporary art.

NYCx3: Magick | 5.5-5.9.2020

A celebration of all things queer: Magick embodies LGBTQI and ally artists representing the queer global experience in a broad range of styles and media.

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend.

Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.

Artist Call New Folk - The Dorsky Museum

Artist Call

New Folk: Hudson Valley Artists 2020
Juried Art Exhibition  June 13, 2020 – November 8, 2020
at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz

The Dorsky Museum invites artists and artisans to submit work that captures the spirit of contemporary folk practice in the Hudson Valley today, or proposes a new vision of what folk art can be – utilitarian, highly skilled, self-taught, locally sourced, inventive, unschooled, crafty, idiosyncratic, decorative, outsider and resourceful.

New Folk is also a catch-all for the long history of visitors and immigrants to the Hudson Valley, from weekenders, agricultural migrants, and many other kinds of “new folk” that come to this area.  We seek artists who’ve experienced this transition or who engage with the ongoing dialogue between old and new communities; local legacies of colonialism or the impact of recent gentrification; the power of belonging and the lure of nostalgia; and the inherited traditions and techniques folk carry with them.

Submition Deadline:  Sunday, March 22, 2020

M&T Bank Clothesline Festival Call for Artists

Artists from across the United States are invited to apply for spaces at the 2020 M&T Bank Clothesline Festival, a juried fine arts festival held on the grounds of the Memorial Art Gallery (MAG). Now in its 64th year, the popular event showcasing more than 400 artists will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13.

Rochester’s largest and longest-running fine arts festival continues to evolve. Originating as a New York State only artist festival, Clothesline has expanded in recent years to welcome artists from across the country. It’s now the place to experience all-day live entertainment, sample food from some of Rochester’s favorite vendors, enjoy free family art activities, visit the museum, and of course, browse and buy original artwork throughout the grounds.

Each year sees the addition of more festivals, but Clothesline remains a favorite with artists. Because MAG charges admission and screens the work of the exhibitors, serious shoppers are more in evidence than at other festivals.

Clothesline remains popular with visitors, too. In recent years, it has earned five “Best of Rochester” awards from City Newspaper readers.  LEARN MORE



The Memorial Art Gallery showcases visual art from antiquity to the present day, including the outdoor public Centennial Sculpture Park. In addition to its permanent collection, MAG offers a year-round schedule of special exhibitions, lectures, concerts, tours, after-hours social events, and family activities.

Hours: Wednesday–Sunday 11 am to 5 pm, and until 9 pm on Thursdays and select Fridays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Admission: $15; senior citizens, $12; college students with ID and children 6–18, $6.  Always free to members, University of Rochester faculty/staff and students, and children 5 and under. Half-price general admission Thursdays from 5–9 pm is made possible in part by Monroe County. For more information, call 585.276.8900 or visit

The Katonah Museum of Art invites submissions for Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial, June 28 to October 4, 2020, juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui. The KMA presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society – past and present – through innovative exhibition and education programs. Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial presents an opportunity for works from artists based locally, regionally, and globally to be brought together to explore their relationships with history and with each other.

For the 2020 juried exhibition, the KMA invites submissions from visual artists, sound artists, book artists, craft-based artists, poets and authors interested in the idea and form of the archive. The goal is to present a broad range of contemporary work that addresses the ways historical objects and ideas are organized and categorized. This call for submission asks:

  • What can be achieved or expressed when historical materials (documents and objects) ground contemporary art practice?
  • How can historical objects be used to upend preconceived ideas about the history of art, regardless of which part of the world it originates?


  • April 3: Deadline for submission of artworks.
  • May 1: Notification of accepted artists by email and web posting.
  • June 19-20, 9 am to 5 pm: Deadline for receipt of all artwork.

Our annual programmatic theme provides common ground for diverse individuals working in various media and disciplines while honoring their differences in experience and perspective.

Throughout our 2021 programmatic theme, Revolution, SFAI will support research, artworks, and creative actions that use artistic imagination to provide sites of resistance, instances of engagement, and solidarity with transformational movements. We seek proposals that aim to revolutionize the status quo and which are bolstered by creative insurrection, utopian imagination, and an expansive agency wherein everyone – across a range of ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, and abilities – has the power to shape reality.

We ask applicants to consider how art and creative tactics can:
?     Reimagine the praxis, grammar, and aesthetics of entrenched and failing systems.
?     Radically shift collective perceptions and lived reality to build capacity for self?determination for all peoples.
?     Catalyze and support radical and profound social, political, environmental, and cultural change that is sustained, intergenerational, inclusive, and liberatory.

SFAI welcomes Local, National, and International applicants of all backgrounds to apply to our International Thematic Residency Program. Our residency is open to all artistic disciplines and other creative practices including, but not limited to curation, design, architecture, and education. We strongly encourage applicants with interdisciplinary and non-traditional creative practices.

Applications close April 1, 2020

Applicants must be 25 years and older.

SFAI accepts applications from Individuals, Collaborations, and Families.

July is our Family Residency month.

All of our residencies are offered free of charge to awarded residents.

$35 non-refundable application processing fee.

$150 refundable security deposit upon acceptance.

Fused Glass Workshop with Jeep Johnson

Fused Glass Workshop
Feb 1st 2nd and 4th

Learn the basics of glass cutting, fusing (combining colors and shapes) and slumping, which gives the glass a shape. You will have the opportunity to make 2 dishes as well as a couple of necklaces.  It’is great fun and very easy and rewarding for beginners, so please don’t worry about your skill level.


We will work Saturday February 1st from 10:00am – 4:00pm. Our goal is to get the glass in the kiln by around 3:00. The glass “cooks” in the kiln for 24 hours, so we come back on Sunday at 4:00  to clean up the pieces and send them back into the kiln to be shaped, which takes another 24 hours.
We will have work pickup on Tuesday February 4th @ 6:00pm.  The pickup will involve discussion, questions and review of your pieces. 

The cost of the class is $175.00 and is limited to 6 people. Reservations are established in the order I receive them. Please call, text or email to make reservations, payments need to follow shortly after, via check, Venmo or Paypal. In the event you are unable to make the class I will issue a credit for another class. There are no refunds, 

I will also be giving classes in the spring and summer and if you have some friends that want to do it together let me know the dates and we can build the classes around your group.
